Edgewood Academy is a school here in Lee County where many kids only get solid meals while at school. This means on the weekends, some will not eat a full meal until they get back to school on Monday. We want to step in and help meet this need.

Can you imagine what our schools would look like if more churches were deeply engaged in supporting them? Can you imagine what that would do to the lives of the teachers, students, their families and the community? We have seen what happens when a church makes a commitment to support a school. And, we want that for every school in the United States. The Imagine Initiative seeks to offer help, hope, and healing for the transformation of schools and their surrounding communities.

By empowering people who truly want to help themselves, Better Together is poised to prevent child abuse and neglect before it happens and match employers to employees who simply need a hand up or second chance.

Pregnancy Resource center

We are a network of pregnancy clinics and education centers providing clear and truthful medical based pregnancy confirmation and education for men and women facing unplanned pregnancy or sexual health crisis. PRC has been serving the Lee County and Collier Counties for over 20 years. We believe a real choice involves knowing all the facts and no one should be forced to decide because they lack support and encouragement. We serve all women without discrimination.

Mission of hope

Mission of Hope (MOH) is on a mission to bring life transformation to every man, woman and child in Haiti. Riverside Church has had the incredible opportunity to come alongside native Village Champions and help equip them to walk out discipleship in their our villages.

Haven of hope, bolivia

Haven of Hope International believes every child has a destiny to fulfill. Our work focuses on those children that may never be adopted, many in orphanages struggling to survive.  We strengthen and empower struggling orphanages with strategic funding, coaching, and training. We help them not only rescue and love these children, but restore them to health and equip them with skills to fulfill God’s original plan for their lives.  We provide opportunities for people to get involved through interactive sponsorship opportunities so they can share in the joy of seeing lives changed.

The 6º Initiative is a church planting movement focused on the unreached people groups just north of the equator in West Africa. The Sixth Degree spans across the balmy African coast that has been impacted most by Voodoo and its exportation of precious human life through the slave trade.

As Converge missionaries, we partner with national leaders to plant churches in the region’s least-reached cities. A concentrated church-planting movement within these culturally significant cities serves as a launch pad for ministry into smaller communities. Our prayer is that we’ll see 190,000 disciples from unreached people groups in Togo and Benin.

SportQuest's ultimate goal is to make disciples for Jesus Christ. Through sports and games, SportQuest wants to bring young people together and build lasting relationships with them. These relationships then give us the opportunity to share our faith with the youth.


SportQuest is not just about sports, it is about building God's Kingdom. Through God's power and grace young people come to faith and churches are encouraged and built up. Sport is the language, young people the target group, municipalities the key, and relationships the necessity!
